Every Friday, I’ll post thought provoking discussion starters.

I hope you’ll approach 2013 with resiliency and resolve so you find the opportunities hidden in each new day. I intend to. Leave the past in the past and move forward. Look back only if it helps you move forward. It’s easy to trip over your own feet so be careful. If there’s something you need to still understand that happened this year, process your thoughts and feelings now. You have four days.

Seek truth. Look hard. Harder. Find what is new and good and possible and step into that. Big steps.

New challenges are bound to be a part of 2013. Respond appropriately. Making resolutions day-by-day rather than for the entire year can be helpful.

Love well. Hope deeply. Desire peace. Love kindness. Walk humbly. Plan patience. Do justice.
